In a display of community spirit, the dedicated team at Vermilion Scotiabank has been contributing to a noble cause every week through their Jean Day Fund. This unique initiative allows the staff not only to express their casual side by donning jeans at work but also to make a positive impact on the community they serve.
Each year, the staff comes together to decide on worthy causes to receive the funds accumulated over the year. In a recent gesture of generosity for the year 2023, the Vermilion Scotiabank Staff rallied to donate a total of $300 each to various organizations that play pivotal roles in the community.
The recipients of this year’s charitable donations include Border Paws Animal Rescue, formerly known as the Lloydminster SPCA, the Vermilion Food Bank, Santa’s Anonymous, St. Jerome’s School, and Vermilion Elementary School. The funds allocated to each organization will undoubtedly contribute to their ongoing efforts in serving the community and making a positive impact on the lives of many.
The $300 donation to Border Paws Animal Rescue will assist in its mission to provide care and shelter to animals in need. Meanwhile, the Vermilion Food Bank will use its share to bolster its efforts in addressing food insecurity within the community.
The support extended to Santa’s Anonymous will undoubtedly bring joy and warmth to families during the festive season, ensuring that every child receives a special gift during the holidays. St. Jerome’s School and Vermilion Elementary School will benefit from the generosity of the Scotiabank Staff, further enhancing educational experiences for local students, through filling the bellies of students through the school's hot lunch program.
This annual tradition not only highlights the compassionate nature of the Vermilion Scotiabank Staff but also emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community. Their commitment to making a difference sets a commendable example, inspiring others to engage in philanthropy and support the well-being of the community at large.
